Five Minutes' Peace

Five Minutes' Peace
Written and illustrated by Jill Murphy
Walker £6.99
ISBN: 978-1406361902

This classic children's picture book is still as entertaining as when it was first released thirty years ago. Parents will love revisiting an old favourite whilst children discovering this book for the first time will laugh along as Mrs Large attempts to find somewhere in the house where she can get some peace and quiet, despite her three endearing, but demanding, children requesting her constant, undivided attention.

Finally, she decides that a warm relaxing bath is the ideal place to find a little time to herself – but does she manage to achieve five minutes' peace? The funny, but familiar, story and the delightful illustrations bring the Large family to life. A must for every child's bookshelf.
